      Amazing on everything

      I fired up the demo mode a little while back for a rough mix of a country track and I loved how authentic it was on an aux track as bus reverb for the BGs. When I went back to my session a while later the demo had expired and I couldn’t get back the smoothness and authenticity with other plugs, so I had to buy it. It’s a must-have for folks doing roots music of any kind. It will become your go-to plate right away. Easy to use, you won’t regret it.

      Not just a mini EMT 140

      Different tones, very easy to dial in. For subtler plates and more depth I choose the pure plate over the EMT 140. A great addition to my go-to reverb plugin collection.

      Just easy and sweet!

      Have all the UAD verbs (except the new Capital Chambers) and it seems I always reach for this one first and it never disappoints. Quick and easy lushness!

      One of the best vocal reverbs!

      At first I thought that I wouldn’t need it if I had the EMT 140, but I was wrong, they are totally different. The Pure Reberb has a different more apparent color than the EMT.

      Easy to Use, Sounds really good !!

      What else?
      If you're searching for a good plate, CPU friendly and very simple to use, this is the one I would recommend.

      Quality Reverb!

      Gobsmacked! I wasn’t prepared for the quality of reverb from such a straight forward plug in. Completely non-invasive space it produces around instruments for starters. Can’t wait to hear it in a mix!

      Beautiful Sounding, Simple to Use

      This easy to grasp plugin gets you a gorgeous sound with little-to-no tweaking. It just does its job really well, providing a full and lush verb. What more do I need to say?

      Classic sound!

      Nice unit, only tried it once, perhaps it's a five star but I need to use it a few more times so because of this it's 4 stars.

      Pretty cool

      Cool plug in, sounds nice but not enough to get 5 stars.

      I love it

      Very simple and easy to use, there’s a certain warmth about it that makes vocals sound great for me and also great on drums especially the snare drum. A great choice for overall use on anything you choose to use it on, very good unit.

      The only reverb I use.

      Very intuitive and amazing sound. You can slap it on your channel strip, while monitoring ,tweak the low cut, maybe take some bass, and bam! Ready to record.

      Très simple d'utilisation

      C'est un ami qui m'a conseillé cette reverb, et je suis très content! Mes instruments sonnent, et se placent bien mieux dans la musique, une bonne plate quoi...
      Vivement sur les voix, je ne sais pas encore ce qu'il en est ...

      Glad I purchased this reverb. Simple interface with very full, smooth, warm and creamy reverb.

      I wish it was less sensitive

      I enjoy the sound but I feel like it could be easier to fine tune

      Gentle reverb

      I think it's better for instruments than vocals

      Reverb - As precise and organic as it should be

      I was lucky enough to get this one as part of a promotion package.
      Admittedly, otherwise, I maybe wouldn't have considered it, thinking "oh well, I already have Plates, and UAD has such a vast Reverbs choice to offer". What a shame that would have been...

      This reverb is a gem. To put it simply, it just works. And isn't that what a reverb's job should be? Be it for tracking, or mixing, it just sounds good, with a pleasing simplicity.
      I love it on vocals and guitar, but I'm pretty confident it's far from being limited to those sources.

      On top of all that, its DSP usage is very decent, and so it makes it a great choice for DSP hungry sessions.

      Great piece of effect for your arsenal.
